§ 9. Mr. Thorne
asked the Minister of Labour what reply he sent to the Town Clerk of Liverpool in connection with the deputation that he met on 20th July last about the distressed areas and the Unemployment Act, 1934?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I have had under consideration the views expressed by this deputation and the particulars of individual cases which were supplied to me in September, and expect to be able to write to the Town Clerk in the near future.
§ Mr. Thorne
What does the right hon. Gentleman mean by "the near future"? Is it within the next few days or this time next year?
